Photos of the Day: Father and Son Get It Done

Written by: Kip Vieth, Wildwood Float Trips


An incredible day on the water surely has Zack hooked for life.

Ben and Zack Commacho were recently up here to Minnesota for a long weekend trip. The first two days were a bit slow, with some bad weather thrown in, but they more than made up for it on the last day. Ten-year-old Zack got a 20.5-inch smallmouth, just a smidge bigger than his father’s 20.25-incher.


Does Zack know that his smallmouth is bigger than his dad’s?

To top off a stellar day on the water, Ben landed a 45-inch muskie on the same water that the upcoming Orvis Muskie School will be held. (My other guide, Nick, is holding Ben’s fish.) To say that they had a day they soon won’t forget is an understatement.


Ben looks pretty proud that his dad caught this big muskie!
